Remember I shared with you the painting of the basement walls, well we couldn’t stop there, or get one project complete without starting another and having the whole backyard in shambles. Of course not, why not make my neat freak self really be overwhelmed with another messy project; the toy shed build. I’m one of those people that like things neat and tidy and everything in it’s place but when construction is going on thats rarely what happens.
I do have to say once the shed is finished it will make for a welcomed hiding spot for all the big boy toys we have. My son started building the shed to hold our quads, dirt bikes, and motorcycles. It’s a actually been quite fun, I’ve been able to help him in the construction phase. Any time I get to spend with my kids is a bonus in my opinion. We managed to get the floor in, the walls, up and the roof on before Michigan decided to turn up the heat and humidity again.
So the project was put on hold until it cools back down to more fall like temps. My son has very limited time to work on it he has a day job, and is a firefighter and EMT by night. Somehow he manages on very little sleep and is finding time to build the toy shed.
Don’t tell anyone but once our son buys his own home I’m dreaming about turning this into a she shed. Wouldn’t it look fantastic with a scrumptious shandy hanging from the cathedral ceilings? I’m already forewarning him that I’m going to hang flower boxes under the windows just to make it look a little cuter than just a plain old shed. I think as long as I leave the inside alone, he’ll be fine with whatever I do on the outside.
Stay tuned, and come back to see the steel up, the windows in, and the door in place as well as the finished basement project. I’m not trying to string you along but work was put on hold with the heat.
